How much music do you listen to? Is it mostly just in background? And movies - do you want to hear bullets whizzing and helicopter blades whirling around the room? Or would you be fine if just the front half of the room had (directional) sound?

Let me get back after the movers finish.

I should take a manual screenshot of the kid in The Last Kingdom talking about that plague saying “It only takes sinners!”

I can just feel your civic pride.

Whoa. I do believe that I see some pigs on the wing.

A. Now I have two reasons to watch NASCAR racing. The crashes and tracks trying to enforce that with the fans.

B. A cause championed by a Black guy who goes by “Bubba.“ May you live in interesting times.

My attempt to slot my grocery ride in between showers failed miserably.

Seems like you could just take a shower whenever you want.

:innocent:

Addition by subtraction.

My guy Bubba has been in the forefront of this thing, and he's rockin' it.

I haven't bought diecast in a long time, but I see two in my future.

And this car last night.....

So, I see the Bubba car, and the mask car in my future, just to remind me WTF went on this year.

Bubba races for King Richard the 43rd. Petty ran a peace sign on his car many many years ago, and the BLM car also pays homage to that.

We're told we now live in a global world. True enough, if you happen to live in the USA. REI recently offered a global elite credit card. It is elite, I'll give them that.

Hmm? There's definitely a "global" world and a not-global world. It's like the website I work on for work. We have clients in Hong Kong, but fortunately we don't need to translate into Cantonese or any other Chinese dialect because all of our clients there speak English better than we could do Cantonese. However, when I visit with AG's family, there are huge numbers of people there who don't speak English at all, or very little. Two Hong Kongs.

I'd believe Mexico City is very international. Of course, here in America there's a world of difference between the glittering city of wonders I live in and the quiet desperation that would be an easy bike ride away without traffic.

We were told it would go away in the summer. Sadly there's no summer.

Oh?

Slow night. Everyone must be out walking.

Should I sign up for a challenge? Would earning a Strava trophy make me an elite cyclist?

Speakers are all in the ceiling. They're sad little ones which may at some point be replaced, or not. Music is almost non-existent through them; it's 99% for TV. Don't really give a crap about directional at all; the thing that gets me is when cheap built-in speakers get a vibration on certain frequencies. My TV in Boulder did it for Ron Swanson's voice, and my next one did it... I forget what that one buzzed for. Right now we're using a basic Yamaha soundbar from Costco and it's fine, but it seems a shame to not use the speakers if they're there.

The wall has a mess of wires coming out. There are two sets of four colored wire pairs (white, red, blue, green), a set of some plugs labelled "master bath" (for piping in Kenny G to your bubble bath I guess?), and then more wires labeled for the directions (such as the LF I'm holding in the pic).

This house is rather a lot for a simple farmboy. The house I grew up in was wired for electricity by my grandfather, with lamp wire.

Far too busy trying to get everything unpacked and set up for tomorrow. I nearly forgot coffee equipment. Coffee equipment!

I like being a simpleton. Looking at the photo of those wires makes my head hurt

I never knew people here were such land owners. The BikeForums Gentry.

I mowed one lawn today and it took seven hours.
